Boko Haram: Military to investigate Baga takeover

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The military said it will investigate the recent takeover of Baga town in Borno State by members of the Boko Haram sect, Thisday reports.

The town was taken over by the insurgents on Monday who also seize a military base outside Baga near Lake Chad after engaging troops in a fierce battle that lasted several hours.

The base is used by the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) which was established in 1998 and is made up of troops from Nigeria as well as Niger and Chad.

The investigation, according to military authorities, is to also determine the extent of internal and external sabotage to the ongoing operation against the terrorists in the North-east.
